The Lawman's Honor, NEW BOOK

Whew, time sure flies!  It's been a while since I've written a post and I promised to keep you posted on new books and such. So here goes:

Releasing Feb. 18:

THE LAWMAN'S HONOR, book four in the Whisper Falls series.

Love's Duty
As assistant police chief, Heath Monroe never expected he'd ever need rescuing. But that's exactly what Cassie Blackwell does when she pulls him out of a car wreckage. He's surprised at the beautiful widow's strength and joyous spirit. But he's been burned before and is cautious to get involved. Especially since his investigation into the town's drug operation might implicate Cassie's late-husband! Yet the more time he spends with her, the deeper he falls. Will he have to choose between duty and his growing love—or is there a way he can have both?

Whisper Falls: Where every prayer is answered…

Seven Layer Dip

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve and us wild partiers at the Goodnight casa are revving up for a good time of chip and dip, maybe a movie or two, and the ever popular midnight event (at our house anyway)  that comes right after the ball drops in Time Square - The Chicken Dance!

Here's the dip I'll be serving to all the revelers:

Seven Layer Dip
(Yes, I "borrowed" this photo. I'll try to post mine tomorrow.)
1 16 oz can of refried beans (no-fat kind is okay.)

1 package taco seasoning

1 small, (about 12 oz) container of guacamole dip

1 16 oz carton of sour cream (low-fat is okay)
2 cups of cheese, cheddar or Mexican blend or Monterey Jack. I usually do cheddar (low-fat is okay)

1 small can sliced or chopped black olives

                                                                               3-4 green onions – just the green part chopped up

                                                                                1 cup chopped tomatoes

To put together:
9 x 13 dish (Can also do round if you have a pretty round container. A trifle bowl would look gorgeous!)
    1. Mix beans with the taco seasoning and layer into bottom of dish. Then layer on the following:

    2. guacamole dip

    3. sour cream

    4. black olives

    5. cheese

    6. Green onions
    7. Tomatoes. 
    8. I sometimes like to put a little shredded lettuce on top but that’s optional
You can eat it right away or chill and serve in an hour or so. Best if eaten the same day it’s made but still good the next day--just not as pretty.
Serve with tortilla chips or corn chips.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, my dear friends.  Keep Calm and do the Chicken Dance!!

Hamburger Stew, Quick, Easy, Hearty

Blustery or cold where you are? Need to fix a healthy meal but short on time? Try one of the Goodnight family's go-to dishes. I'm making some right now!

Hamburger Stew, easy and quick

½ to 1 lb hamburger, browned in a dutch oven or big pot

½ T minced garlic

Salt and pepper to taste

¼ t oregano

1 T Worcestershire

2 potatoes cubed

½ chopped onion

1 can tomatoes

1 can tomato sauce

2 cans your choice of canned veggies with juice left in (I've used corn, beans, English peas, hominy, veg-all. Use what you have on hand.)

Add water as needed to form the soup consistency you like. (Usually around 2 cups for us.)
Brown meat with garlic and seasonings. Then add the rest of the ingredients. Cook until potatoes are done and flavors blend, usually about 20-30 minutes.
